shine on, shine on harvest moon… [with edit]

tomorrow (monday) is dakota’s egg harvest… i can’t believe it is finally here!

we made it through 9 days of shots with the grand finale last night at 1am – the trigger shot that i had to give dakota in the rump. it is hard to plunge that needle into your sweetie’s tender flesh – those of you who have done it know…

i took the day off work tomorrow and we go in for dakota’s harvest/retrieval at 11am. i am excited and nervous… i hope for many eggs (doc said she saw at least 7 were of the right size to be in the running when last she looked). we will be fertilizing and then freezing them.

i am still waiting to ovulate myself so i can do the IUI we have planned… i am at day 20 and am still at one bar (one being low fertility, two being high fertility and three being peak fertility) on my monitor. when i hit two i will go in to check on follicle growth and then EVENTUALLY when i get to three, IUI time. i am a bit worried that my body is going to take a pass on ovulation entirely this cycle and then we will have to wait till next cycle… hope not.

wish us luck and many many juicy eggs harvested tomorrow… and wish my egg(s) to follow suit soon so we can get on with the IUI…

[edit] woke up this morning and my monitor reads 3bars (OVULATION), skipping 2 and going right to three… did i mention the whole *marching to the beat of my own drum* thing? soooo, it is likely we will have insemination today as well as dakota’s harvest. can you say CONVERGENCE? turns out when compared to the fear that i would *not* ovulate at all this cycle, convergence is looking a-ok.

more when we return from the great egg adventure…
